South Platte River - Cheeseman-Chatfield

Tip of the week 

During the peak of the hatch both bwos and midges can be fished with a dry and an emerger in the surface film or just below the surface, but getting deep with nymphs and even emergers is typicaly most effective. To get to the biggest fish in the deepest runs use lots of weight.

Seven-day forecast 

Temperatures have been warm for the first week of September, with more of the same forecasted. Mornings and evening are cooling down quickly though, be prepared with proper clothing and extra layers. Fall fishing in the canyon can be spectacular, get out and enjoy Fishing remains good to excellent on a variety of imitations, adjust depths until you find the fish!
